Koko Head Sun Gazing

When you come to Hawaii, Oahu to be exact, I highly recommend sun gazing on top of Koko Head! It was great, super energizing and one amazing workout before your reach the top. When on Oahu, drive/bicycle/scooter/bus your way to Hawaii Kai, and right across from Hanauma Bay, you will see a tall, steep hill/mountain with a trail right up the center of it, that’s Koko Head! If you are going to do this, you need to be at the top no later than 6am, but 5:30am is best, after these times the sun starts to become very strong. So, if you are athletic it can take you 15 minutes if you go non-stop, no more than 25 minutes. If you are not so athletic, or you just want to go up casually, get to the base at least 30-45 minutes before you want to be at the top! Getting at the base at 5am and then being at the top at 5:30am is ideal. Trust me, the view is amazing, the hike is amazing and the sun gazing is perfect!
